Description
Selection of Near Eastern-Western Asiatic Gold Granulated Beads - (3)
Circa 1000 BC

A very fine selection of three Near Eastern-Western Asiatic gold beads. Each bead is unique from the others. One bead features large gold granules arranged around a central perforation in a flower like composition. Another bead features two rows of small gold granules arranged around a central perforation. The last bead features a single band of gold granules arranged around a central perforation.

Such beads would have been part of an elaborate necklace or bracelet. Jewellery played an important role across many Near Eastern civilisations. Gold necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets would have been worn in everyday life but also buried with the deceased.
